Student life

Connect and develop

Student chapels

Weekly student chapels are all about experiencing God firsthand. Students will come together to draw near to Him and let Him minister by His Word and Spirit. Expect flexible times in God’s presence as well as guest speakers.


Serving weekly in Victory Family Church’s services provides opportunities for application. Each student will also stay personally refueled by attending (1) service.

Small groups

Students will participate in small groups together each semester. Small groups provide an avenue for greater interaction with fellow students and connection with leaders.

Mission trip

Each student will go on (1) mission trip during their time at Waymaker. This will provide ministry opportunities and a wider awareness of God’s work in the earth.

Retreats and events

Retreats and student events are opportunities to get away with God and connect with students and leaders. Whether it’s going to a retreat center or having a family dinner, these are memorable moments in the student experience.


Because our bodies are God’s temple, we want to steward them well. Students will participate in workouts and run in one of the Pittsburgh Marathon races (choice of 5k, marathon relay, half marathon, or full marathon).
